Shingles strikes some 750,000 Americans each year.  It can appear at any age, but is most common in people over the age of fifty.

Shingles, also known as (Herpes Zoster), is a disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus, the same virus that causes the chickenpox.

When this virus enters the body, it does not go away.  It may lie dormant in the spinal cord and nerve ganglia for years until activated, usually by a weakening (temporary or permanent) of the immune system.

Ninety percent of people who have had the chickenpox are at risk of developing shingles.

L-Lysine, Probiotics, EFA’s from flax seed and primrose oils, ( just to name a few) can be helpful.  Also keep in mind, adequate rest  and managing your stress levels can be very beneficial.
